Read one owner’s experience with buying a Sedpma Pines Timeshare:When I bought my time share at Sedpma Pines, RCI assured me that availability was not a problem because only members of the program can access the timeshares. I have since learned that availability is a serious problem, RCI engages in the practice of skimming a large percentage of the timeshares from the system, including many prime timeshares, and renting them to the general public at a profit to RCI, or selling them to vendors who then rent them to the general public.
As a result, no matter how meticulously one follows RCI’s rules and procedures, and no matter how far in advance one begins looking for a desirable exchange, one simply cannot find available destinations.
Since RCI does not allow extending points into the following year without a $99.00 payment one is forced to either forfeit the points or pay an additional $99.00.
